About the property

Ski Chalet in Valfrejus, Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Ski To The Door And Brill Powder In The Right Conditions. Transport And Guiding To Other Resorts.

Traditional standalone stone and wood French Chalet. It is peacefully located 150 metres above the center of Valfrejus and the main lift station. The Chalet has off road parking, snow chains may be required. Entrance on the ground level is through the heated boot room to the cloak room again with heating to ensure all ski gear is warm and dry by the morning. Upstairs to the sitting/dining room on the 1st floor, cosily heated by underfloor heating and a very efficient French log burner. Plenty of windows and glass doors to the balcony allow a panoramic view of the resort and the surrounding mountains. On this first floor there is also the first of the four double bedrooms, a bathroom, separate loo and kitchen. Moving up to the second floor there are the three remaining double bedrooms and a bathroom with toilet and walk in shower.

About Joni Rushton

Hi. We are Bruce and Joni and we welcome you to our Chalet in the Alps. Bruce has skied since the age of 8 and still loves it just as much as when he was first introduced to a pair of skis on a Yorkshire golf course! Joni joined the sport much later in life but does have the occasional exhilarating day! Her love in life is people, and everyone adores her open smiley character.

We have two children 26 and 28, both excellent skiers but both now living their own lives. During the summer we have been living in Turkey renovating an old 50' ketch in order to fulfill our lifetime dream of becoming sea gypsies. We look forward to seeing you this winter and will assist all we can in making your stay a very happy and memorable one.

Joni Rushton purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Joni Rushton chose Savoie

Bruce had worked as a ski guide in Courchevel and we had been thinking about buying somewhere for a few years but the prices in the 3 valleys were definitely prohibitive. We found this chalet in the summer of 2000 and bought it for Bruce's 40th Birthday. When we arrived in 2001 we skied to/from the front door for three whole weeks in powder. We have had varied seasons, brilliant good and bad, and we absolutely love the area and the friends we have made here.

What makes this chalet unique

Within Valfrejus, Snow White Chalet is well positioned only a short walk to the lift, restaurants, bars and shops yet just far enough away not to be affected by late night travellers. Within the Maurienne Valley the resort itself is perfectly positioned to venture down the valley to the nearby resorts of Orelle, Valloire and Karellis or up the valley to visit La Norma, Aussios or Val Cenis.

Enviable Location A Brief Stroll From Lifts

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious Chalet just moments from the ski bubble and restaurants.

What makes this a special holiday, however, is the effervescence of Joni and Bruce. Truly fantastic holiday experience.

Notes on accommodation: We do not have a dish washing machine - perhaps next season but not this season. Sorry. The bathroom on the 2nd floor is usually shared by the bedrooms on that floor, it's big and seems to work well. The bathroom on the 1st floor accommodates the 1 bedroom on that floor. There is a separate loo on the 1st floor too. Bruce and Joni sleep on-site in a self contained flat on the ground floor. This means we are always somewhere not too far away and you must feel free to ask our advice or help you to sort out any problems you may encounter. But don't worry, we won't interfere with your holiday at all... unless you want us to.
